Received the paper ballot for AEA 2006 Officers election. Of course I don't bother sending it back. But I would have voted for Chris Sims as the Vice President. (Tom Sargent is surely the next President).
As for the upcoming Nobel Prize in Economics, my guess is for Bhagwati.
Finally, for this far-from-representative list of "world's top intellectuals", I voted for al-Qaradahawy, Toer, Becker, Bhagwati, and Posner. (Yes, there is a Friedman in the list -- but not THE Friedman).
